Summary

The Children's Court of Western Australia deals with offences alleged to have been committed by young people aged 10 to 17 years. The Court began as the Perth Children's Court under the State Children's Act 1907 and operated within the City of Perth. Following amendments to the Act, the Court was permitted to sit in the metropolitan area. With the passing of the Children's Court of WA Act 1988, it became known as the Children's Court of WA.
